Forum: classic_tv Subject: Video-Cellar, I need help finding information on 1956 ABC-TV live play

To Quigs, Thank you for your words of encouragement.

Video-Cellar, I did manage to find the name of the 1956 one-off play presented on ABN-2...it was "The Twelve Pound Look" on 5 November 1956. However, I cannot find the names of the cast. If you have any information on the production, please let me know. It was the first live play presented on Sydney television, was produced by Paul O'Loughlin, and was based on a play by J.M. Barrie. That's all I know. There was later a Melbourne TV version of the play, but it's the Sydney version I'm interested in.

EDIT: OK, it seems Margo Lee and Alexander Archdale were in the cast. Knowing that I will make a page for the production, however, if anyone knows the names of any additional cast members please let me know.

I only know what I just read on IMDb: It was an episode of "Producers' Showcase" that aired 19 September 1955.

A seller on ioffer has it available on DVD-R, but I don't know if it is public domain or not, nor do I know the condition of the copy being sold.

At least it's out there, which means that if it is indeed PD, somebody could uploaded it. This is assuming of course that it is PD. I can't find any listings for it on the US copyright office website. Could very well be PD unless it's listed under a title other than that I searched for (which is possible). The songs are under copyright, not sure if that's an issue.

Probable could be but Hey someone had a year or two uploaded Brigadoon from a 1966 or 1967 telecast.
